left to right electropositivity decreases due to decrease in atomic size.Non-Metallic CharacterThe ability of an atom to accept electrons to form a negative ion (anion) iscalled non-metallic character or electronegativity.

She knows that she needs atelescope to see those distant stars. She finds out that the telescopes, which are 1x 4made of lenses, are called refracting telescopes and the ones which are made ofmirrors are called reflecting telescopes.So she decided to make a refracting telescope. She bought two lenses, L1 andL2. out of which L1 was bigger and L2 was smaller. The larger lens gathers andbends the light, while the smaller lens magnifies the image. Big, thick lensesare more powerful. So to see far away, she needed a big powerful lens.Unfortunately, she realized that a big lens is very heavy.Heavy lenses are hard to make and difficult to hold in the right place. Also7

since the light is passing through the lens, the surface of the lens has to beextremely smooth. Any flaws in the lens will change the image. It would belike looking through a dirty window.19 (i)Based on the diagram shown, what kind of lenses would Sumati need to makethe telescope?a) Concave lensesb) Convex lensesc) Bifocal lensesd) Flat lenses19 (ii)If the powers of the lenses L1 and L2 are in the ratio of 4:1, what would be theratio of the focal length of L1 and L2?a) 4:1b) 1:4c) 2:1d) 1:119 (iii) What is the formula for magnification obtained with a lens?a) Ratio of height of image to height of objectb) Double the focal length.c) Inverse of the radius of curvature.d) Inverse of the object distance.19 (iv) Sumati did some preliminary experiment with the lenses and found out that themagnification of the eyepiece (L2) is 3. If in her experiment with L2 she foundan image at 24 cm from the lens, at what distance did she put the object?a) 72 cmb) 12 cmc) 8 cmd) 6 cm19 (v)Sumati bought not-so-thick lenses for the telescope and polished them. Whatadvantages, if any, would she have with her choice of lenses?a) She will not have any advantage as even thicker lenses would giveclearer images.b) Thicker lenses would have made the telescope easier to handle.c) Not-so-thick lenses would not make the telescope very heavy and alsoallow considerable amount of light to pass.d) Not-so-thick lenses will give her more magnification.8
